Interior designer Linda Woodrum repeated a square motif throughout the HGTV Dream Home 2014 to create a cohesive look. Here, the shape is featured both in the geometric squares featured on the powder room walls and in the artwork just outside.
This dynamic entryway features a contemporary red console table with two tan ottomans tucked neatly underneath. The space focuses heavily on geometric shapes and clean lines, evidenced by the rectangular table, cubed ottomans and spherical painting.
A photo gallery adds color and interest to the hallway adjacent to a contemporary kitchen. The colors in the framed images tie in to the kitchen's color palette, creating a seamless feel between the spaces.
Claire Paquin carefully blended her design ideas with the unusual architecture of this home for a stunning look. For example, in the hall at the top of the staircase leading to the master suite, she placed colorful modern art facing each other on two blank walls to balance the weight of a large slatted half wall that otherwise commands the space.
Why waste space with plain hallways when you can add attractive, custom-built bookcases like this one, designed by Stacy Jacobi. Her design style has been described as “New England Coastal went to Hollywood,” and we think this bookcase demonstrates that perfectly. Jacobi had the bookcase handmade by Mark Blaire, who used simple unfinished pine with glass panes, then painted it with Benjamin Moore high-gloss White Dove paint.
The homeowners wanted an open space in their newly remodeled home, but they didn't want their spaces to feel jumbled, so designers achieved this feel in the kitchen by using the cabinets to set the parameters for the space. To create this definition, a peninsula was added on the third "wall" of the kitchen, separating the it from the hallway without making either space feel too closed off, giving each area its own identity.
The Palazzo, a 200-year-old mansion located in Rabat, Malta, boasts 10,700 square feet of living. The dramatic entry hall features an impressive skylight, as well as a thick glass floor that allows views of the floor below and above.
